dearest someday » for the dreamers, the free spirited and the adventurous

Oh gosh.. not many words are needed for this post!  xo

This is how I will always remember our visit to San Diego.  Seeing the kids as they experience the vastness of the ocean.  Watching Laine in the waves.. getting braver and going in further and further, falling in love.  Then seeing Harley chase the seagulls.. over and over and over again.

Yes.. this is how our trip will forever be in my memories. xoxo

My little sun-kissed beauty..

These were the first shots taken with my D800 last month.. so in love with the way this camera picks up greens!

You may have noticed that this blog is kind of going into photography mode, which is good!  ..but, I promise… as summer ends, there will be more and more crafty/decor blog posts again.. and a more regular blogging routine as well.  It has been so very easy to fall into the relaxing mode of summer.. I actually curled up and read an entire book yesterday.. it was fabulous!

Hope you all are enjoying your last day of July! xoxo

This shoot was seriously a dream come true!

The lighting was incredible, the little girl so very adorable.. and the pony, oh gosh.. such a gentle creature! It was a pleasure to spend the evening with this pair.. it couldn’t have gotten any better!  So much fun!

..if you want to see more.. you can pop over to the dearest someday facebook page and see a full album. 

I was so honoured when Larissa of Besotted Vintage asked me to take photos of her darling little girl.  She sure knows how to style the perfect photo shoot!

So many blog posts to catch up on! hee!

How about a little country sweetness today?  

This shoot seriously made me giddy.  Several times I had to stop myself from completely making a fool of myself while jumping up and down.. I was just so excited! hee!  The setting was so gorgeous, and the weather.. even though it chilled to the bone… the hazy mist and overcast skies gave us the most excellent lighting!  Ohhh.. and don’t even get me started on the stunning model and the glorious wardrobe and styling!  ..seriously, giddy!

Here are a few of my favourites..

Thank you so much Brittany for doing such an amazing job as model.. a natural for sure!  Also, I am so very grateful to be given the opportunity to photograph this styled shoot for the incredible Besotted Vintage.. Larissa did an amazing job with this incredible wardrobe and styling!  Always a treat to work together! was such an amazing experience! 

..hope everyone is having a great summer! xoxo

Isn’t this the most charming lemonade stand you have ever seen?  This entire shoot was put together and styled by the talented Larissa of Besotted Vintage.

Look at how darling this is..

Wouldn’t this be fabulous at a wedding.. or perhaps a birthday party or baby shower?

Larissa did such an amazing job.. I was seriously gushing over all of the wonderful details! ..she completely nailed it!

Besotted Vintage is a wonderful new business located here in Grande Prairie.. they have a wonderful inventory of the most fantastic vintage finds.  You must check them out!  I must say, hearing all of the creative ideas for upcoming shoots has left me nothing but inspired, and so eager!  I can’t wait!  It is going to be a fabulous summer!  So grateful for new friends!

Hope you like! xoxo
